of your travels. nina davuluri, miss america, 2014. >>> it's been a tough month for the obama administration marked by the rocky rollout of the president's new health care program. a new survey shows while americans are aware of obama care, not that many have tried to sign up for coverage. let's get out to bertha coombs. is this a lack of interest or many people can't get online to sign up? >> it's hard to say but i would imagine the technology problems certainly are adding to this. the survey by the commonwealth fund finds that 17% of americans who are potentially eligible for coverage under the affordable care act, known as obama care, have visited the new health insurance exchanges to enroll in a plan, either by mail, phone orion line. the commonwealth fund is a private foundation that supports independent research on health care reform. the poll was conducted between october 9th and october 27th right in the thick of all of the problems that we've been seeing with the website. 60% of people say they are aware of the marketplaces. that's up from about 1/3 in a survey done e
